This past weekend, director, editor, actress Lynn Shelton died unexpectedly. Lynn Shelton died of a previously unidentified blood disorder in Los Angeles on May 16, 2020, at age 54, after several days of ill health. She directed several award winning films:

2006 We Go Way Back

2009 Humpday
2011 Your Sister’s Sister
2013 Touchy Feely
2014 Laggies
2017 Outside In
2019 Sword of Trust

This episode of the Soul Forge acknowledges her passing, but the main focus is on the man she left behind. Marc Maron has been a major influence on me and the podcast for the last several years. Although I have never met him, I feel a strange type of connection to his personality and his life. Lynn’s passing and his grief have affected me on a fundamental level that I can’t explain. So listen to this, but be warned that there are several clips of Marc’s WTF Podcast. The emotion is real and it’s raw.
